Hot Houses: A Howard Hughes hideout and Bruce Willis' Idaho ranch

Each week FOXNews.com picks its Top 3 over-the-top luxury listings from Mansion Global.

This week we have homes owned by three famous guys. Take your pick of properties from Aaron Burr, Howard Hughes or Bruce Willis.

Can’t get Hamilton tickets? Why not just buy Aaron Burr’s former home instead?

“‘Hamilton’ is so hot right now, and we have something that is a part of it,’’ said Corcoran broker Bernice Leventhal, who is one of the brokers listing the home. “We are definitely looking at the ‘Hamilton’ angle. People who are history buffs and who love the play will fall in love with the house.”

In history books Aaron Burr is famous for having killed Alexander Hamilton, the nation’s first treasury secretary in a duel in 1804. In the musical “Hamilton,” Burr has become infamous with a new generation who has been wowed by the vocal stylings of original cast-member Leslie Odom Jr.

This three-bedroom single-family house, with striking original 19th Century details, is situated on one of the New York City’s most desirable streets in the West Village. The current owner had the property approved by the city’s landmarks commission.

The two-story townhouse also features a study and a charming private garden.

Burr isn’t believed to have actually lived in the home, but his ownership of the property might be enough for history buffs. A historic plaque on the front of the home reads, “Aaron Burr House 1802.”

The 2,200-square-foot Federal-style home at 17 Commerce Street is listed for $5.75 million.

If you’re more interested in modern history and you have a spare $17.5 million around,

the gorgeous Tahoe getaway once owned by legendary film producer, aviator and tycoon Howard Hughes has just hit the market.

The estate, eloquently nicknamed Summertide, has quite the pedigree. It was originally built in the 1930s by mining mogul Tasker Oddie. It was next sold to Lord Christian Arthur Wellesley, a descendant of the 19th Century Duke of Wellington before Hughes snapped it up.

The 2,518-square-foot home has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, one half bath, and a detached four-car garage. There’s also a separate lakeside guest house which is approximately 1,280 square feet and features two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one-half bath.

The property also has its own pier, boatlift, and mooring buoy facilities, RV parking, sprinkler system, and hot tub.  

And finally we have an Idaho ranch fit for today’s Hollywood royalty. Bruce Willis has recently  put his Idaho ranch back on the market.

Situated between Hailey and Ketchum on Flying Heart Lake in the coveted Sun Valley area of Idaho, the estate features an 8,400-square-foot main house with six bedrooms.

The landscaped grounds include ponds, streams and an outdoor pool complete with waterslides. The "Diehard" star rebuilt the main house and added a guesthouse and gym after he bought the estate.

At $6.499 million, the latest asking price is less than half the original asking price and the sixth consecutive price cut.
